The DEC has the lake broken down into grids. When doing their creel surveys they ask which area of the lake you were fishing. The windmill grid is the area around the windmills. Each grid is approximately ten square miles.

Thanks.

DEC Announces Angler Outreach Event on Wednesday, June 20

Biologists to Provide Update on Status of Lake Erie and Niagara River Fisheries

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) today announced a meeting to update the public about the status of the Lake Erie and Upper Niagara River Fisheries on June 20, 2018.

"This annual event provides an excellent opportunity for anglers to interact with the biologists who study and manage Lake Erie and Niagara River fisheries," said DEC Regional Director Abby Snyder. "Among this year's updates biologists will share exciting new findings from studies exploring movement patterns of walleye, lake trout, and lake sturgeon."

The meeting will take place at Woodlawn Beach State Park's Lodge on Wednesday, June 20, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., and will begin with an informal discussion and poster exhibits. The meeting will be followed by a series of presentations on Lake Erie and the Upper Niagara River fisheries topics, including an opportunity for angler input on a variety fisheries management activities. The meeting will conclude with questions and an open discussion.

Key members of Lake Erie and Niagara River's fisheries management and research community will present on Lake Erie fisheries research, management and assessment activities. This seminar is sponsored by DEC's Lake Erie Fisheries Unit and Region 9 Fisheries offices. Anyone interested is welcome to attend this free event and registration is not required.

The Lake Erie and the upper Niagara River rank among New York State's top fishing destinations, especially for walleye, smallmouth bass, and steelhead. The 2007 statewide angler survey estimated more than 800,000 angler days spent on these waters and the estimated value of these fisheries exceeded $22 million to the local New York economy.

For further information contact Don Einhouse, Lake Erie Unit Leader, (716) 366-0228.

Interesting reading. Good to see the DEC using our license dollars to help improve our fishing.

Like I said in my earlier post I'm new to fishing Lake Erie. I would like to take my sons out to catch some smallmouths on Father's Day. Any suggests on where to start and what to use? I will be launching at SBH

The south gap by the lighthouse or Seneca shoal are both good starting points. You can't go wrong with a three way swivel, eight inches of line to a sinker, twelve to eighteen inches of line to a #6 hook, and a good supply of crabs. You'll tear'em up. Good luck.

Gobbler.. I don't buy bait . Go to a creek like Cayuga and lift the shale rocks. Crabs are underneath and you  can pickem up. I'm old school self sufficient. Picking worms and catching crabs....

Going out tomorrow, debating on Ontario or Erie did you have luck trolling or were you bottom bouncing?
